The Book Nook Weekly Discussion

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: Best of 2017. Following the proud tradition of year-end softballs, what are some of the best books you read this year? New to you, or actually published this year, talk up your favorites one more time. If you read any books published in 2017, cast your ballot for the Best in Books Pits award.

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
12/20: an Avocado recommended it, you read it
12/27: resolutions, looking forward to in 2018
1/3: where we get our recommendations (h/t sallgood, man)
1/10: how many do you read at the same time (h/t Colonel Mustard)
